rd. there's a new debt ceiling plan from speaker john boehner and the house republicans that could force senate democrats to finally show their hand and pass a budget. plus it's only day four of president obama's second term, but joe biden is already commenting on possibly running for the top job himself in 2016. we'll show you what he said in a minute. first the new developments in the debate over guns in america. the national rifle association last night delivered a sharp response to president obama's inaugural address. speaking in reno, nevada, way waywayn wayne lapierre lashed out at one word from president obama. >> we cannot mistake absolutism, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it's a way of redefining words so that commonsense is turned upside down and that nobody knows the difference. >> lapierre vowed not to give ground on gun control including effor
of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him
. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,
thought that he had settled the issue, and speaker boehner too, with allowing higher rates and some other changes to limit some reductions, to bring in more revenue. they thought, okay, that piece is complete. well, now democrats are looking at putting a budget together that they haven't formally done, but said revenue will be in it. so that will be a huge fight. i think one of the hard parts tc and we struggle with it as journalists, the ideas are complex. the fact that it leads us into the future, it's so hard for any of us to see that crystal ball and know. so the deadlines have become the way they operate. needing short-term, immediate deadlines to force people to act. and that is exhausting for the public as well as the hill and it's not always that effective. >> and it will continue. and we have a lot more to come with our power panel. but we want to go to trivia time. who is the only treasury secretary to serve under three presidents? the answer -- andrew mellon. he was appointed by warren g. harding in 1921 and suddened to serve under calvin coolidge and herbert hoover. a lot of f
into president obama's second term speaker of the house john boehner says he beliefs the president wants to destroy the republican party making it easier for the white house to push through the agenda of democrats. have a listen here. >> so we're expecting mere over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt too annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of history. bill: that's not, not just some guy talking. that is the speaker of the house. monica crowley, radio talk show host, fox news contributor. good morning, monica. emily sussman, president of young democrats for america. how are you doing today. >> very well. thank you. bill: let's go at it. what do you make of the speaker's comments of nile ages? >> just dawning on john boehner and republican leadership this is the president's goal no wonder the republicans had a tough time of it recently. of course this is the president's goal. it has been his goal since day one. there is nothing in the president's history or backg
boehner after the passage of a bill that temporarily suspends the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling through mid-may. it passed in the house of 285-144. briefing is about 15 minutes. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] >> good afternoon everyone. with the passage of this bill today, it's pretty clear that we are sending a message to the democrat-controlled senate, it's time to do your job. the principle is pretty simple. no budget, no pay. american families have to do a budget and they understand you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. we're committed to doing a budget on the house side, a budget that will balance over the next 10 years. it's time for the senate and the president to show the american people how they are willing to balance the budget over the next 10 years. >> today's vote was the first step towards trying to resolve the nation's fiscal crisis in a responsible manner. look forward to working with the white house and the senate to do so. it's interesting to note with after almost four years
? >> fine. how are you. >> geraldo: you had paul ryan there, very charming. he voted with john boehner on the fiscal cliff negotiation indicating that maybe he is in the conciliatory wing of the republican party. how do you figure? >> well, paul ryan was there. i was at that conference this morning. one of the best things, one of the most cheered up, the attendees the most was seeing one young star after another, ted cruz, the new republican senator from texas, tom cotton, congressman from arkansas and there are a lot of young, attractive, interesting conservatives and they don't agree on everything. i think there is a lot of internal debate going on -- i know there is a lot of internal debate and public debate at the conference. what do have you to compromise on? where do you have to drought lines and fight? i thought it was healthy. they are not in the fetal position, could youering or lashing out. they are trying to think about how to fight president obama, where to compromise, and hoto develop their own positive governing agenda, going forward. >> >> geraldo: president obama will b

[ applause ] >> president obama having arrived at the platform, greeting both of his daughters and his wife and mother-in-law. you see behind him, there is vice president biden, chuck schumer, chair of the inaugural committee is the first person we'll hear from and call proceedings to order. and then it unfolds like the greatest graduation ceremony ever. >> rachel, there's a moment when the new president takes over, like when reagan took over from carter, when the chief of secret service walks behind one guy to the other guy, it is pretty creepy. it is pretty creepy when you're the guy losing protection, but nicely enough, it will be the same guy there. >> jerry ford was the first president who upon leaving office from the inauguration of the new president, jimmy carter, decided to leave by helicopter, seen as a rather odd way to leave on the way, but every president has followed that tradition. it is a dramatic way
connell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the wide shots of the white house. not the back side with the rounded edge. but a flat-wide front of the white house. >> there you see senator kerry on the right. >> one of the big differences when you have a change of power, you know, current president greets the new president and one of the traditions is he leaves a note. that doesn't happen this time. president obama doesn't need to leave himself a note about the seco
went to the house in march of last year, leading democrats had already conceded to defeat to boehner and cantor. i would say this of people who were in there for 30 years, how many seats do think the democrats are going to win? they never went higher than 50 and needed 25 seats. they ended up with seven. so what are we doing with the democratic party that cannot defend the country against the most ravaging the ignorant, cruel, vicious, anti-people and hire promoting republican party? what what happened to the bill? then we will talk about we think are the best strategy is to push a florida. jesse jackson is no longer in congress. he was the one, jesse jackson, jr. from illinois, introduced it. what happened there? >> he had about 21 sponsors. then the democrats decided sense of and did not want to make minimum wage an issue, they had george miller put in a bill -- >> the congressman from california critics to whom all democrats differ to on labor issues. they had a hundred or so democrats signed on. it was designed to go nowhere. it was $9.80 minimum wage by 2014. >> by the way, for
exchanges. speaker of the house john boehner presented flags to the first family and appealed for renewed political cooperation. >> we gather in the old hall to better hear one another >> ifill: moments later president obama echoed that appeal for cooperation >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy. and i recognize there are profound differences in this room. but i just want to say thank you for your service and i want to thank your families for their service because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. and i'm confident that we can act at this moment in a way that makes a difference. >> ifill: and before they left the building, the group paused to look at the bus bust of dr. martin luther king, jr. that sits under the capital rotunda. then back into the cold for a military review on the steps of the capitol. and the slow drive down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. the one-mile parade route was packed with waving and cheering onlookers, some of them peering d

this week, as you probably know, speaker boehner spoke and said that the obama administration wants to, quote, annihilate the e republican party and shove it in, quote, the dust bin of history. do you agree with that interpretation of obama's inaugural address? >> i believe that republicans and democrats both have the design to try to become dominant, and so the republicans certainly would like to decrease the power of the democratic party, and the democratic party would like to decrease the power of the republican party. that's what, how politics works, and maybe speaker boehner because he gets buffetted around sometimes by his fellow republicans, he's maybe a little sensitive to those comments.
